Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
Welcome to the home stretch!
Our study of water continues.We started with properties of water (cohesion, adhesion, specific heat, Universal Solvent) and are now studying water quality, all in preparation of our field trip on May 6 to the Frontier Culture Museum's stream.
We finish out the year larning about chemistry: the Periodic Table, elements, atoms, molecules, and what makes up the Earth.
During the entire semester we study the scientific method, as it pertains to answering an unknown question. We practice our skills in: Observation, Inquiry (the question/ what do we want to learn about a topic), Hypothesis, Research, Experiment, Data, Analysis and Conclusion. These can be tough concepts for kids. Please talk to your child to see what he/she is learning
Thank you for your continued support of your child and our school!
